I remember that last year when DP was injured we won all the games in Serie A. That was the period where Nedved found his form. We played several small teams but the most memorable win during DP's absence was the 3-0 against Inter.
As far as rotation goes, we should keep playing all the strikers like we are now so that they all stay in form. And DP should be a part of that rotation as well.
Rotating strikers isn't a bad idea because if one of them would be left out for a long period and then suddenly needed due to injuries to other players then he would be rusty and probably not as fit as the usual starter .. But with squad rotation everyone gets his chance and all players are kept on their toes, waiting for their moment to shine ..
I read sometime ago that di Vaio was actually happy with Lippi's rotation and that's a good sign ..
By the way, I'm starting to feel the Neddy and Di Vaio has become best friends, they like celebrating goals together
Other 'couples' : Trezegol and Camo .. Del Piero and Zambro .. Tacchi and Appiah ? .. Montero and Ferrara
With his good form he could've demanded a first team start especially that Del Piero is injured and he has been very patient in the past season .. but it's good that he's Ok with it and respects Lippi's choices ..
i really think it will be better for Del Piero and the team if he dont stand above the rotation system.. but the reality is he do.. and even an on form Di vaio still have to give in to a fit Del Piero...
Yeah, I agree with you! Lippi should follow the rotation system, but as Alex is the captain and the fav of the fans and very good in the same time, he won't be left out for sure. Lippi will be in a hard situation to decide who should start, as Miccoli and Marco play also very well nowadays! And we mustn't forget about Trez!
